My name is Anneliek ter Horst. I am a graduate student in the Plant Pathology group, in the lab of dr. Emerson. My research interests are mainly focussed on viral metagenomics and plant associated microbial communities.
We use ecological techniques, metagenomics, and bioinformatics to study viral communities and their influences on their hosts. With our research we are trying to better understand viral communities and their contributions to soil and plant health in different agriculturally important ecosystems.
